What screwdriver should I use?

Hello there, I will be taking apart my 3DS ( Wifi card problems ) and I've been doing some research and it seems that the #00 Screwdriver which people recommend MIGHT strip the screws. Is this true? and if it is true what screwdriver should I use?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Alex, any screwdriver "MIGHT strip the screws". That is where the importance of good tools comes in. I prefer to use quality tools only, and invested in a set from here. The chances are slim to strip screws with the right set of tools.

I used the smallest phillips screwdriver I had, and it worked fine but you have to press down firmly on them to make sure they grip tight enough without stripping.

if it they arent coming dont force them. Apply a drop and i mean a tiny drop of oil (wd-40, pb blaster, trumpet oil, car oil, whatever). you need to let the drop of oil work in there for 20 seconds or so and try again. it is best to work the screw in and out meaning tighten and loosen it to get it free and even after its free you might have to tighten and loosen to work that oil in there. It will come out like this with patience
